The con-artist comedy ``American Hustle and the 3-D space odyssey ''Gravity`` lead the Academy Awards with 10 nominations each, with the historical epic ''12 Years a Slave`` trailing closely with nine nominations.

The nominations, announced Thursday morning in Beverly Hills, Calif., set up an apparent three-horse race between three very different films, all of which were nominated for best picture.
Nine films were nominated for best picture. The other nominees are ``Captain Phillips,'' ''Dallas Buyers Club,`` ''Her,`` ''Nebraska,`` ''The Wolf of Wall Street`` and ''Philomena.``

The most notable omission by the academy was Tom Hanks, whose lead performance in ``Captain Phillips'' was widely considered a shoo-in. Robert Redford, expected by many to be nominated for the shipwreck drama ``All Is Lost,'' also missed out on a best actor nod. Redford has never won an acting Oscar.

The best actor nominees are Chiwetel Ejiofor (``12 Years a Slave''), Bruce Dern (``Nebraska''), Leonardo DiCaprio (``The Wolf of Wall Street''), Matthew McConaughey (``Dallas Buyers Club'') and Christian Bale (``American Hustle'')

Disney's making-of ``Mary Poppins'' tale ``Saving Mr. Banks'' also failed to land either a best picture nomination or a best actress nod for Emma Thompson.

The best actress nominees are Amy Adams (``American Hustle''), Cate Blanchett (``Blue Jasmine''), Sandra Bullock (``Gravity''), Judi Dench (``Philomena'') and Meryl Streep (``August: Osage County'').

Canada's Owen Pallett and Will Butler of Montreal-based Arcade Fire have scored a nomination for best original score for their work on ``Her.''
The 86th annual Academy Awards will take place March 2, with Ellen DeGeneres hosting for the second time.
